    Hi
    I have started making my own dog soaps start with tea tree and I'm going to branch into other types soon :) it's all natural just clear soap an teatree oil :) I have used it on balto and friends dog and it works lovely and leaves the pooches smell gorgeous :) I just wondered if anyone wanted a free sample? Limited to 30 :)
    Many thanks
    Katie xx

    What type of soap did you use for it out of curiosity? (Ie its not going to dry out skin like human soap can?)

    I would be interested. :)

    We use human shampoo as the chemical strength / smell of most dog shampoo's are so overpowering I cant stand them. I dont want a dog which stinks of shampoo, just a dog which doesnt smell to doggy hehe

    Haha I hate overpowering as well! No it's really mild smell after a bath takes the wet dog smell off! It's just standard clear melting mix, I can u the ingredients when I get home for that mix :) it doesn't dry you or dogs out I have washed my hands with it ands it's fine, Ihave used organic tea tree oil as It deters fleas :) just pm ur address if u would like a sample xx

    Ooh I'd love to try some, liquid shampoo is a bugger with Rupert he's got so much fur you have to keep squirting more on, soap bar would be way better :thumbup:

    That sounds great! Good Luck with your new product! sorry if this is a stupid question but is it quite strong scented or refreshing 'non doggy' smell? :)
    If you have any spare, a sample would be lovely. :eek: :)

    That's a very good match to the PH of a dogs skin (which is between 6.2 & 7.4 in case you didn't know) :)

    I'd like to try some soap please. I'll PM you my address if you promise not to stalk me :lol: :D
